What the Heck is Lawn Bowling? 

The object of lawn bowling is to roll the bowls (lawn bowling balls) as close to the jack (movable target) as possible. Sound easy? But the bowls aren't completely round. Instead they are weighted on one side of the bowl allowing it to curve as momentum is lost. The bowl curves either way, depending on how it is held during delivery. Watch the video below for an introduction.

There are four basic games played:
Fours - four players per team, 2 bowls per player
Triples - three players per team, 3 bowls per player
Pairs - two players per team, 4 bowls per player
Singles - one player per team, 4 bowls per player

Scoring is similar to curling - closest to the jack scores points.
